Probably many of you have purchased various stamp sets and used them once and never touched them again. I know that I have! And because of that I wanted to try to use an autumn themed set that I have, in a whole new way. In November I shared some Thanksgiving cards I made using the adorable Harvest Mouse stamp set from My Favorite Things creator, Birdie Brown. And then in February I challenged myself to use the set again but, to create Valentine’s Day scenes.
Making these little mice into messengers of love was pretty easy. All I did was use a razor knife to create a slit on either side of the mouse’s arm and then I inserted a Valentine greeting in his grip. I did the same thing to the basket and of course I just glued some hearts around the mouse who was in a leaf pile in the original set. Viola, Autumn mice become mice of love! (You can also see that I doodled stripes and checks on their sweaters and vests and I gave one of the mice an elbow patch on his sweater too.)
